Khojaly Commemoration Evening (Strasbourg)

Over 150 diplomats, VIPs, journalists and friends of Azerbaijan attended the Khojaly event at the Odyssée cinema in central Strasbourg – home to such institutions as the Council of Europe and the European Parliament – on 16 February. The evening was organised by the Justice for Khojaly campaign, and comprised a screening of the award-winning documentary Endless Corridor, featuring the Lithuanian journalist Ricardas Lapaitis, who was an eyewitness to the massacre and spoke at the event. The tone poem Khojaly 613 by French composer Pierre Thilloy was also performed, featuring Azerbaijani violinist Sabina Rakcheyeva.
